Watch three great presentations on the Semantic Web in the video of our November 2 Research Without Borders event "Harnessing the Semantic Web For Scholarship." Benno Blumenthal, Data Library Manager at the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), offers an introduction to semantic technologies, using the IRI Data Library as an example. Cristina Pattuelli of the Pratt School of Information and Library Science outlines how she is using semantic technologies to work with cultural heritage collections. And Fordham University assistant professor Micki McGee describes her work with semantic technologies on the Yaddo Circles Project and the Compatible Data Initiative.
The speakers illuminate the potential of the Semantic Web as a productive tool for scholarship and research while illustrating how semantic technologies are still in the beginning stages of development.
